Location: Ashen Fields

Regional Influence: Apprentice


The Protectorate of Carl Gershman is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service and ban on automobiles. The compassionate population of 8.082 billion Carl Gershmanians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Public Transport, and Education are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 30.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Carl Gershmanian economy, worth 412 trillion Monies a year, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 51,071 Monies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Many feel that the government's ban on cars to combat reckless driving was "a tad excessive", older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, being nicknamed "Orange Face" has done Leader's credibility no favours, and coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Carl Gershman's national animal is the Rattlesnake, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Carl Gershman is ranked 240,052nd in the world and 143rd in Ashen Fields for Highest Drug Use, scoring 13.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
